It can be TV-14, but I'd still like it to fit these requirements:

-Cursing from time to time is fine.
-Suggestive dialogue/etc. is fine. Stuff at the same level of the bike/bi-sexual joke Tomoya played on Kyou, if you've seen it.
-I'd like to avoid fanservice altogether, which means stuff like Haruhi is out of the question - too many times when Kyon walks in on Mikuru Asahina changing. OH! And the censored F-bomb in... episode 1, was it?

Anything that fits those requirements, at least for the most part? And preferably dubbed, if possible. If I'm asking for too much, let me know. =/

Just finished Aishiteruze Baby so I thought it might be something good to try and get my family to watch.

Also others worth mentioning from the top of my head...

Clannad: Afterstory
Angel Beats
Toradora
Usagi Drop
Steins;Gate
Anohana
5cm Per Second

Clannad: Afterstory - I'd rather not drop them into the middle of Clannad.
Angel Beats - Forgot that it was dubbed. Probably my best bet.
Toradora - Have to buy it, and they're probably not gonna want to read subtitles.
Usagi Drop - Never read/watched it.
Steins;Gate - Not available for streaming/DVD/BluRay yet, iirc.
Anohana - Again, subtitles only. And I don't have the money to purchase it.
5cm Per Second - Heard about it, never watched it.

Thanks, though. I'll try Angel Beats.

I said that TV-14 was fine, not that I'm specifically looking for that rating. I kinda want it to be more family-oriented. Sorry for the confusion.

I don't remember anything objectionable in Azumanga Daioh, you have to be into shows that are funny because so little happens tho. Of course it's always possible I'm not remembering right :)

So many anime series have to have the obligatory "hot springs" episode or the "crossdressing" episode, it can ruin a whole series for some people for no real reason, I hate that! I don't have a problem with those types of things, but I know that one episode means I can't watch the series with family.

Are wanting to get your parents involved or is this more of a siblings kind of thing?

Usagi Drop. Seriously. It's an absolutely brilliant anime, fit for all ages, funny, and may bring a tear to your eye at times. Absolutely spectacular.

Clannad, Kanon, Air, Itazura na Kiss and any other shoujo to start.
Also classic anime movies to adapt them to the stories and drawings.
I let them watch Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and they loved it, be wary of tears (same with clannad). XD

Mushishi - Really good one imo since it's episodic. The way each story is told is amazing and the art is beautiful. Highly recommend.
Natsume Yuujinchou
Angel Beats
Ano Hana

Deffinatly
Usagi Drop, It's very toned down in terms of anime cliches
Moribito: Gardian of the Spirit. Beautifilly animated and more realisticly drawn characters.
any Studio Ghibli movie.
Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
Usagi is not dubbed, I do believe, But I'm pretty sure Metro is, and I am positive about Moribito. Most of the newer Ghibli films are, as well, and released by Disney.
It would help if you specified a bit more about the sort of people your family are (conservative, super sensative, fantasy lovers/haters, etc.). I would be wary of showing them any bishoujo shows, explicit or not, because the aesthetic of moe (or super cuteness that guys in japan love) is rather disdurbing to some, considering the fact that the girls often seem like middle school aged.
